So I went with my Sister.. my niece and friends to the Bahamas. It was her 21st Birthday. Yes I know, I am spoiled. I don't know what I did to deserve such a fabulous year. But here I am and I am going to enjoy every second! Honestly, I don't remember ever traveling this much, or to such great places.
So here we go.... a recap.
On our way to the Bahamas... Do I look excited? Maybe. A little.
Can I take this chair home with me? I think every mom should have one.
We went to the Atlantis quite a bit, it was right next to our hotel. FUN!!
Went through the exhibits and aquariums.... insert Bangles music here.
My beautiful 21 year old niece Kaeli!!!
Her mom... my sis... Tracie!!! I love you bunches. xo
So then it was back home... to kids and activities....
Track meets. Connor is a rock star!
Look at my boy. Awwww. So proud.
And Cassidy too! She had so much fun.
Look at her jump. Weeeeeeeee!
Then it was time to say goodbye to Mrs. Biller (a.k.a the best teacher in the world!), Robert Asp Elementary, and to the 5th Grade.
How did he get so big so fast? And now he will be in Middle school next year. YIKES!
And while I was away... Well, you all know I have been working like a crazy woman. I had a show downtown (Fargo) at Atomic Coffee. I was nervous, palms sweating. I knew a lot of people would see my work. You could say I am still reeling from the whirlwind of the last month. I had writer from the High Plains Reader contact me wanting an interview. I did it. The day before I left on my trip. I was pretty goofy... I get all anxious and as my best friend teases me so often I 'forget how to speak human'. So I was more than nervous at what the outcome would be. So when I came home I saw the article....
Wow... A whole page? (Jaw drops to the floor) Okay let's read it...
Here are a couple terrible pictures... I forgot my camera. I had to use my phone. Sorry.
Hello cheesy grin. I look petrified. And I was.
It was dark... again, sorry I didn't take better pics.
You get the idea.
Missed you all. I am basically starting from square one since I have sold almost everything. Even at the Gallery! Things are sparse and I need to get back to work. I haven't forgotten you! I promise! It Is hard to know what to do at this point. I only have a few pieces left and I need to take most of what I have into the Gallery. So here is what I have decided..... I am going to sell one piece this month. An original. Whoever gets it, gets it. I will post the piece sometime this week. I will be adding what I can, when I can after that. Things have been going at such a pace, that is hard for me to keep up. Especially, since I have been gone so much. I want to thank you. You make it all worthwhile. The kind words, support and inspiration are truly appreciated. BIG HUGS.... and good karma coming your way.
